Booker Prize winner 2012

And the Man booker prize for the year 2012 goes to Hilary Mantel for her Bring up the bodies..She was my personal favorite too but that wouldn't be fair as I have only read two other books apart from Bring up the bodies.

She becomes only the third author after Peter Carey and J.M Coetzee, to win the prize twice, which puts her in the empyrean..But she is also the first to win the sequel Wolf Hall won in 2009 and the first to win with such a brief interlude between books. Her resusciatation of Thomas Crowell- and with him the historical novel.There is the last volume of her trilogy still to come so her Man booker tale may yet have a further chapter..You can also read long list nomination here and short list nomination here.

  1. There has been a lot of buzz about this Hilary Mantel and this book even before the award was given. I really hope to get to it soon. Though vaguely aware of the real events that inspired this story, I think that I might want to read a real life history before I read the fictional account.
